The french toast really soaks up the flavor of the vanilla and cinnamon overnight.

  • Recipe was easy to make and turned out great. I had company over and we had it for breakfast and it was a hit. I will be making this again!

  • This sounds really good. I have made it and have it in my fridge to try in the morning.

  • This recipe was easy and a perfect Christmas morning breakfast!! I prepared it the night before, refrigerated overnight and popped in the oven the next morning. It turned out perfect!! I did have to cook it longer, as the eggs were not done after 35 minutes. It's an all in one breakfast - no syrup required - just serve and eat. It will definitely go on my list of holiday foods.

  • Terrible! The caramel is extremely sweet, overpowering the dish. It's so sweet, in fact, that my 5-year-old grandson wouldn't eat it! Worse, the caramel gets very, very hot and retains its heat for a long time, enough to burn your lips and mouth. It sticks to everything it touches, including the plates and forks. When it finally cools a bit, it becomes hard and chewy, enough to pull out your fillings. Stick with REAL French toast and maple syrup.

    If you're still tempted to make this, I strongl

  • i made this for a big game day brunch and got raves from the whole gang. Not for the calore conscious, however! Super easy to make and convenient. Even the few leftovers were great later
